About Redmond Clay Real Bath Salts and Facial Mud
Redmond Clay prides itself on using real natural elements from the earth to create its healing products. The Redmond Trading Company has natural remedies and enjoyable products from bath salts to edible clay to toothpastes! Having had a mud facial before, I was excited to try out Redmond Clay’s facial mud at home. All in all, I really enjoyed the experience! Especially for the price, the products I tested definitely made me feel like I was having a mini spa experience! I tried out both Redmond Clay’s Real Bath Salts and Redmond Clay’s Facial Mud, and loved both of them. Put together, and add in a little essential oils and candles, you can really give yourself a mini spa day in the comfort of your own home!
The quality of Redmond Clay’s products is fantastic. The bath salt and mud facial products that I have bought at the drugstore before haven’t been the best. Facial pastes that you can buy at the drug store are usually sticky, not very effective, and they aren’t always actually made of all natural ingredients. But Redmond Clay’s bath salts and facial mud are 100% natural, and have a high quality feel to them. The Facial Mud went on smoothly, and came off with no residue. My face felt very clean and refreshed. The bath salts are high quality as well. Adding in some essential oil (I used rosemary, but lavender would have been nice, too), I felt as if I was lounging in clean, warm, ocean water. It was lovely! Both of the products are useful for relaxation as well as self-care. We mamas need to remember to take time out to relax and rejuvenate our spirits, and Redmond Clay’s products definitely helped me do that, without worrying that I was submerging myself or my face in something that might make me break out or cause a skin reaction because it was all 100% natural.
Redmond Clay’s bath salts and facial mud would be a great gift for anyone from family members, to friends, and even for teacher gifts for your little ones to bring to school or extra curricular activities. And the price is not very steep, compared to relatively similar non-natural products. So you can afford to order a few of each for gifts. Redmond Clay’s online ordering website, Redmond Trading Company, even offers free shipping for orders over $40 (excluding bulk items)!
Other Natural Products from Redmond
If bath salts and facial mud is not quite your thing, Redmond also makes natural electrolyte replacement capsules called Re-Lyte Capsules that look like an interesting and healthful substitute for sugary electrolyte drinks. And I already mentioned they make toothpaste from the Redmond Clay, too! The natural ingredients plus the flavors that they advertise make me want to try it for sure! They have positive user ratings and reviews on all of their products, and I can tell that their items are a great fit for someone looking to live a healthful, natural lifestyle.
You can purchase your own Redmond Clay Bath Salts and Facial Mud at Redmond Trading Company starting at $7.99 and $9.99, respectively. But remember, natural spa products are not the only products Redmond has for a natural lifestyle: Re-Lyte capsules are $11.99 for a 60 ct. bottle and they also have multiple gift packages to choose from.
